    I moved to the villages with my wife Connie in 1998. Bill and Kathy were already village residents. Bill seemed to take me under his big wings and always seemed to watch out for me. We became very good friends on and off of the golf course. For the last 12 years, every Easter Morning I would find around my yard lamp post about 200 colored golf balls that I’m sure would take Bill about a year to round up. Every year I could count on Bill putting those golf balls around my lamp
    Post. What dedication, what a friend. I suppose I’ll miss Bill the most this coming Easter Sunday when I wake up go out to get my newspaper and there won’t be any colored golf balls around my lamp post. Never got to tell Bill how much I looked forward to finding those golf balls every Easter Sunday. But knowing Bill I’m sure he knew how much I loved having him as a friend and how much I looked forward to those balls
    Take care Bill I’ll never forget you and your kindness your friend
